Biography* Charles Capers Culpepper was the son of Francis Marion and Elizabeth Emory B. (Haralson) Culpepper. Mrs. John (Grace Culpepper) Fowke wrote:3

Papa's middle name was Capers.... He was named after a Methodist Bishop.

Capos Conley "Chip" Culpepper, II, a great-great grandson of William Henry and Sarah (Leslie) Culpepper, wrote:4

The good Bishop Capers, according ot the Methodist "Book of Discipline" was William Capers who was elected Bishop in 1846. His length of serivce is not recorded....

Charles was born on the eve of the Civil War. His parents were noted in the 1860 census in Almond P. O. District of Randolph Co., AL and this is where he is presumed to have been born. Charles was only eighteen months old when his father died in the War. Based on letters in Francis Marion Culpepper's Civil War file, his mother was living in Daviston, Tallapoosa Co., AL by 1863. And by the 1870 census, a nine year old "Charley" Culpepper was noted with his mother in the 1870 Chambers Co., AL census. A year later, his mother died. Mrs. John (Grace Culpepper) Fowke wrote:5

He told us his mother died when he was eleven years old and he was reared by his Uncle Kinchen "Kenny" Haralson, his mother's brother, and his wife, Aunt Molly.

Mrs. Fowke continued:3

My father... was a devout Christian, a saintly man. You would never meet a man that lived closer to God -- he truly walked with the Masters.... He was a farmer and a rural mail carrier. The modest farm was located between Cussetta and LaFayette, Alabama. After he sold it, it was known as "the Culpepper Place" for years.
Charles Capers Culpepper died at his home in Cusseta, Chambers Co., AL in 1927. He was 66 years old.6

Memoriam.
The most sacred and endearing scene of mutual love, gentleness and peace, is grouped in the family circle where a devoted husband and fond and loving mother and obedient children know no discord. Such a circle is surely a fit type of heaven, and one the angels of God might linger around. How happy and blissful such a scene of today. But return tomorrow and the happiness of all is involved in a pall of sorrow and gloom, caused by the death of one of that happy circle. In a few hours the father's pride and mother's joy, is laid away in the silent grave. Father and mother return to their once joyous, but now saddened, home, every object surrounding them there, reminding them of a dearly loved one gone from them - gone forever.
Such the social surroundings of little Miss Mary Lizzie Culpepper, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. C. Culpepper, born June 23, 1892, and died Aug. 28th, 1901, aged nine years and two months.
"Tis said, "death chooses a shining mark."
If so, in the demise of this pretty, lovely and intelligent little girl, never, probably, has death's shaft struck a brighter mark, among the children of men, then the day sweet little Mary Lizzie fell beneath his cruel blow.
For her age she was, as every one said, who knew her well, one of the brightest and most precocious of children they had ever seen - a perfect "book-worm;" seemed never to worry with reading and study at school or at home, and had her life been spared, would, doubtless, have left her footprints on the sands of time" But fate decreed it otherwise. Death, like an exorable foe, executed his stern commission regardless of the most endearing relation.
Kind Heaven often thwarts our well laid plans for His own wise purposes, but it will all be made plain in the good bye-and bye, "Father Cardinal, I think I hear you say that "we shall know our friends in Heaven," if this be so, I shall see my boy again. He was a lovely child". And if it be so - and I've no doublt of it, dear disconsolate parents, of Mary Lizzie, you'll see your child again, where never more will the tear of sorrow be known.
Them, parents, weep not for your child,
Which to you by Heaven was given,
Oh, remember that Jesus has promised,
"Of such is the kingdom of heaven."

You have laid her body away
In the grave without fame or renown;
While angels have borne her spirit aloft,
There Heaven's bright throne to surround.

Where in that Paradisical home,
That glorious home up above;
In sweet Beulah land ever to roam,
And survive on Jesus' love.
C.T. Camp Hill, Ala., Sept. 7, 1901.1
 
Burial* Her body was interred at Cusseta City Cemetery, Cusseta, Chambers Co., Alabama.2

From Tommie Sue Reeves Smith, May 2001:

"I talked with Hannie McGill Simpson, daughter of Clara Culpepper McGill today. She had received the copy of the picture and had time to examine it.... She basically agrees that it is almost sure to be a picture of William Jehu and Josephine Culpepper.

The youngest child being held by Julia should be Mary Glanton ,3. George was born in 1890 but is not here at least in the picture. If we can accept this scenario then we have left to right, Malcolm Henry Luther, Josephine Culpepper with Emily Delura, 9, standing in front of her. Julia Eldora,10, would be standing next holding a child that would be Mary Glanton ,3. William Jehu Culpepper would be standing behind Frank, 6. Carrie Eunice and Clara Earnest the twins, 7, should be the toddlers dressed somewhat alike. James Benjamin and John William , 11, the twins should be standing on either side of the horse.

I know this version requires accepting spurts of growth expecially for the three older boys. This would have been in Arkansas because I know that Robert Earl was the first child to be born in Texas. Following him would be Nannie, Carl, and my mother Tessie who was last."1

Biography* William Jehu Culpepper was the son of John Malcolm and Sarah Ann Elizabeth (Stephens) Culpepper. He was noted as a two year old "William G. H. Culpepper" in the 1860 census of Almond P. O. District, to the west northwest of Louina (now Wadley) in Randolph Co., AL, and this is where he is believed to have been born. Billy's middle name is pronounced "jay'hue" and it has been variously recorded as "J. Hugh," "Jahue" and "Jehew." Possibly the 1860 census taker heard "G. Hugh" and recorded "G. H." However, Mrs. D. W. (Lavyn Wright) Sisco, a great- granddaughter of John Malcolm and Sarah Ann Elizabeth (Stephens) Culpepper and a historian for the family, wrote letter 28 Sep 1979 that Billy's daughter-in-law, Mrs. F. D. (Nora McFarland) Culpepper thought that William's middle name was "Jehu (as in the Bible)." Jehu was a king of Israel who was recorded in the Old Testament in Book II Kings as a son of Jehoshaphat, the son of Nimshi and he was noted for destroying the dynasty of Ahab and Jezebel.

Billy married Josephine East in 1876 and they settled down to raise their family in Randolph Co., AL. Although noted in the Louina Beat (now Wadley), Randolph Co., AL in the 1880 census, the family must have lived very close to the border with Tallapoosa Co., AL since they apparently attended the Methodist Episcopal Church of Pleasant Hill in Daviston, Tallapoosa Co., AL.7

Based on the birth locations of children from census records, Billy moved his family to Arkansas around 1890. Unfortunately, the 1890 U. S. census records were burned. Lavyn (Wright) Sisco wrote8 that Billy is believed to have farmed in the Hurricane Creek area of Grant Co., AR. Hurricane Creek runs north to south through the eastern third of the county.

In 1892, Billy's parents moved to the Pine Forest Community in Hopkins Co., TX. This small community is southeast of Weaver (which is about 10 miles east of Sulphur Springs) near the Franklin County line.9 Not long after this, Billy suffered a crop failure in Arkansas and he followed his parents to Texas, taking his family by train to Weaver, TX and from there going on to Pine Forest.10 When Billy arrived in Texas with his family, they had nothing, not even coats and hats.11 Billy started out sharecropping "on the halves" for two or three years on the Walker farm which was owned by Robert A. Minter. 11 A sharecropper was a tenant farmer who, in exchange for a share, e.g., half, of the value of the crops produced, was given credit for seed, tools and a place to stay. When the crops came in, the amount credited was then subtracted from the tenant farmer's share. Gradually, with hard work, Billy was able to accumulate enough that he was able to buy his own land.11 Lavyn (Wright) Sisco wrote:12

Uncle Billy Culpepper was an old man as long as folks could remember, even looked older than his father, John. He was a strong Methodist. His wife was and even-tempered woman who cared for him as though he were a child.... Uncle Billy called everyone younger than he "dear baby." No one would ask him how he felt, he always hurt somewhere. He was a farmer.
     
In 1918, Billy was 60 years old when he lost his wife of 42 Years.13 He then went to live with his daughter, Mrs. Thomas (Tessie Culpepper) Reeves, and this is where he died in 1929 at the age of 71.13

William Jehew & Josephine (East) Culpepper
Biography* William Jehu Culpepper called his wife "Miss Jo."4 Mrs. R. W. (Tommie Reeves) Smith wrote of her grandmother:5

Julia Ann Josephine East [was the] daughter of Ben and Ikasie (? Kirk) East (for a time I believed that the father of Josephine was Tom but the Randolph Co. Census of 1870 names her as Emily East with correct siblings in Fairplay Township. She was 13. This was six years before her marriage to Billy Culpepper. Her brother was named Tom.) Actually Ben East married twice. Josephine was the youngest child from his first marriage. Her full siblings were named Bill, Laura, and Mary. His second wife's maiden name was Susan Duke. Their children's names were Jim, Richard, John, Wyatt, Mitchell, Tallie and Thomas Elias.

According to the 1910 census record, "Emily J. Culpepper" gave birth to 17 children during 34 years of marriage. William Jehu Culpepper announce new arrivals by saying that he and "Miss Jo" had "done wrong again."4 Only 16 of the 17 children have been identified and only 14 were still living in 1910.

"Miss Jo" died in 1918. Lavyn (Wright) Sisco wrote6 that, in 1955, when a new Methodist Church was being built near the cemetery in Pine Forest:

The Billy [William Jehu] Culpepper family donated the bell for the bell tower. Once upon a time the bell hung in the back yard of the Culpepper home. Ringing the bell was Josephine Culpepper's way of telling the family in the field that dinner was ready.
.
First the name Ikasie is spelled phonetically by me [Tommie Reeves Smith]. In the 1980's I had a personal interview with Mae East Hancock in her home. She was a grand daughter of Benjamin
Franklin East by his second wife. My mother knew her well. She pronounced the name but did not know for sure how to spell it. So I can only suggest you keep an eye to names that sound like it to be sure.
.
For purposes of this discussion I am going to call her Ikasie Kirk East. She could indeed have had another name like Lucy but I do not have that information . Lucy's age would place her two years younger than Benjamin which would work well. She married Benjamin Franklin East who was born Nov. 15, 1834. I do not know Ikasie's birth date unless she is Lucy.
.
Benjamin Franklin East married for the second time Nov. 4, 1858. So Ikasie must have died when my grandmother Emily Julia Ann Josephine East was very young infant. I do not know if the birth had anything to do with Ikasie's death or not.
.
I have seen a census for 1860 that shows a definite reference to the baby about age 2 Emilie Julia Ann Josephine both in the home of J.P. Kirk and in the home of Benjamin East and his new wife Susan. Evidently the census taker came at different times and both the grand parents and the birth father counted the child that was my grandmother. The grandparents must have helped take care of the child between the time of the death of Ikasie and Benjamin's new marriage.
.
I have a very old Bible that has a face sheet in front that shows Billy
Culpepper and Josephine East were married in the home of J.P. Kirk and the ceremony was performed by William Henry Culpepper the grandfather of Billy.
.
I asked Mr. Hoyt Kirk once specifically if he knew of a connection with my grandmother's relatives and those of John Wesley Kirk. He was not able to shed light on it then and of course if I had mentioned Lucy he would probably have known.

I've attached the Westlaw pdf image of the case, John Francis' action to recover back pay as police chief of the city of Pine Bluff. The mayor suspended him but the city council refused to approve the action. Meanwhile John took a job as a deputy sheriff (he resigned almost immediately, and before fulfilling any duties as deputy). Construing this as a resignation, the mayor appointed someone else. From then until the court's ruling, neither John Francis nor his replacement was paid a police salary. The Arkansas Supreme Court held that the job and the back pay belonged to John Francis, because no law prohibited a man from concurrently serving as deputy sheriff and chief of police.3

Biography* John Francis Culpepper was the son of John Malcolm and Sarah Ann Elizabeth (Stephens) Culpepper. He was born and raised in Randolph Co., AL. Sometime after the 1880 census, Frank's parents went by wagon train to Grant Co., AR and Frank is presumed to have gone with them.

In 1885, he married Florence M. Johnson. Mrs. D. W. (Lavyn Wright) Sisco wrote5 that "about 1885-1887," Frank and his younger brother, Dan Culpepper, went to Hopkins Co., TX. Lavyn continued:6

They were looking for good farming land.... Uncle Frank returned to Ark.7 and didn't return.

Frank joined the Pine Bluff, AR police force and served as a patrolman and then as a city detective before being appointed chief of police by Mayor H. King White.8 He served several years in that capacity until he retired in April 1905.8

Frank then went to work as a night watchman for the Bluff City Lumber Company.8 Shortly after midnight, on December 5, 1906, he detained a trespasser that he found on the property.("J. Frank Culpepper Killed by Negro Miscreant Early Today," unknown Pine Bluff, Jefferson Co., AR paper, possibly the Weekly Graphic 5 Dec 1906) Frank intended to turn the man over to the police and kept the man ahead of him as they went up the steps to the office where there was a phone; but, at the top of the steps, the man turned and fired twice, hitting Frank below the heart and in his left leg.8 Frank shot three times killing the man.8 Frank was then taken to his home where he died a few hours later.8 The man was later identified as Eli Tilford who had been arrested previously for carrying a razor.8

Biography* Daniel Elias Leslie Culpepper was the son of John Malcolm and Sarah Ann Elizabeth (Stephens) Culpepper. He was born after the Civil War and raised in Randolph Co., AL. Sometime after the 1880 census, Dan's parents went by wagon train to Grant Co., AR and Dan is presumed to have gone with them.

Mrs. D. W. (Lavyn Wright) Sisco, a family historian for the John Malcolm Culpepper family, wrote 9 that "about 1885-1887," Dan and his older brother, Frank Culpepper, went to Hopkins Co., TX to look for land. Frank returned to Arkansas, but Dan apparently stayed and, in 1889, he married Dora (Hardison) Stephens, his cousin's widow, and they settled down in Pine Forest, Hopkins Co., TX to raise their family. Mrs. D. W. (Lavyn Wright) Sisco wrote:10

Uncle Dan Culpepper was a very tall man. He farmed some but was also in law enforcement....

Dan was 43 years old when Dora died in 1911. In 1914, Dan married another widow, Omega Lela (Johnson) Page. Dan was 52 years old when his second wife died in 1920. Dan was married a third time in 1923 to Sarah Maud Hopper. They settled down east of Como, Hopkins Co., TX. Over a period of about 14 years before his death, Dan served as a justice of the peace or as a constable.11

In the Fall of 1935, he was appointed constable of the County Commissioners Court and, in late January, 1936, he was serving as door bailiff for the grand jury of the District Court in Sulphur Springs.11 According to the Friday, 31 Jan 1936 Hopkins County Echo 11 on "Thursday night,"after finishing up with a grand jury session, Dan was headed home when his car ran into a truck and Dan was killed. There were other accidents in the area that night which were attributed to the sleet and ice covered highways and windshields and these factors were believed to have contributed to Dan's accident. Dan was 68 years old.

Biography* Robert Henry Luther Culpepper was the son of John Malcolm and Sarah Ann Elizabeth (Stephens) Culpepper. Luther was noted as a one year old "Robert Culpepper" with his parents in the 1870 census of Louina P. O. District, Randolph Co., AL and this is where he is presumed to have been born. This district was in the area of what is now known as Wadley, AL. Sometime after the 1880 census, Luther's parents moved the family by wagon train to Grant Co., AR, then, in 1892,("Beautiful Tribute Paid to Uncle John Culpepper" unknown source, presumably a Hopkins Co., TX paper, circa 12 Jan 1927) Luther went with his parents and their two youngest children by train to Saltillo, Hopkins Co., TX.(Mrs. D. W. (Lavyn Wright) Sisco, "John Malcolm Culpepper," typed sheet and letter 15 Apr 1994) In 1895, Luther married Annie Elizabeth Forgy and they settled down to raise their family near Saltillo, TX. Mrs. D. W. (Lavyn Wright) Sisco wrote: (summary of the children of John Malcolm Culpepper) Uncle Luther Culpepper was a rustic fellow. He settled near Saltillo (Hopkins County). When all the relatives came on the train, they always stayed with Uncle Luther. Uncle Luther built a house when he first came to Texas. His youngest daughter purchased the farm when she married. She reared her family in the same house and tore the original house down within the last five years. Luther died in 1921 at the age of 51. ======================= A 41 year old Luther was listed in the 1910 census of Hopkins Co., TX (ED 60 Sheet 217) with his wife and older children.
      Mrs. D. W. (Lavyn Wright) Sisco in a 5 Jan 1978 letter listed the name as "Robert H. Luther Culpepper." The Mrs. Tommie Reeves Smith Family Group Sheet lists "Malcolm Henry Luther" but this was a son of William Jehu Culpepper. Census records support "Robert H." He was known as "Luther." Mrs. D. W. (Lavyn Wright) Sisco supplied a family group sheet for Robert H. Luther Culpepper which noted that after the 1880 census, the family had moved from Alabama to Grant Co., AR where they remained until 1888 when they moved on to Hopkins Co., TX "settling at Route 1, Saltillo." Lavyn noted in a 15 Apr 1994 letter that Luther had come by train to Saltillo, TX with his parents. Mrs. Sisco also supplied the following information in a summary of the children of J. M. Culpepper: Uncle Luther Culpepper was a rustic fellow. He settled near Saltillo (Hopkins County). When all the relatives came on the train, they always stayed with Uncle Luther. Uncle Luther built a house when he first came to Texas. His youngest daughter purchased the farm when she married. She reared her family in the same house and tore the original house down within the last five years.

Biography* Sarah Ann R. Culpepper was the daughter of John Malcolm and Sarah Ann Elizabeth (Stephens) Culpepper. Her parents were noted in the 1870 census of Louina P. O. District, Randolph Co., AL and this is where Sally is presumed to have been born. This district was in the area of what is now known as Wadley, AL. Sometime after the 1880 census, Sally's parents moved the family by wagon train to Grant Co., AR.

In 1889, Sally married George Franklin Hill. The couple was noted with their infant daughter in Sulphur Township, Grant Co., AR in the 1900 census records. However, based on the birth location of the next child, the family moved to Hopkins Co., TX by 1902 and this is where they settled down to raise their family. According to Mrs. D. W. (Lavyn Wright) Sisco,2 their farm was "one mile southwest of the J. C. Bradford farm." Mrs. J. C. (Nancy Gillespie Culpepper) Bradford was Sally's younger sister.

At some point Sally and George apparently moved to Oklahoma since this is where George died in 1933. Sally was 61 years old. Sally died in 1957 in Texas at the age of 86.

However, based on the birth locations of the children, the family moved to Hopkins Co., TX around 1902 and this is where they remained. Mrs. D. W. (Lavyn Wright) Sisco wrote about her grandmother:1

Nannie Bradford was an even tempered woman. She married James (Jim) Bradford. Jim Bradford was one of the best farmers in the county. His first seven children were girls and each could plow with mules as well as any boy. The Bradford home was a gathering center. There were always birthday dinners, Easter egg hunts, watermellon cuttings and Jim was always 'it' in the first game of blindman's buff. All preachers and peddlers were welcome to spend the night at the Bradford house.

Nannie died in 1932 at the age of 58.
